Heather Butchy -  Tea Sommelier

Heather is a certified tea specialist with over a decade of experience in the industry. From education via the World Tea Academy to independent research on tea cultivar, terroir, and blending, Heather has built her knowledge on a foundation well-established by her simple love for a shared pot.

A English teacher by day, she imparts her passion for the beverage with hands-on education. “Tea is a social beverage consumed among countless cultures…and the best way to learn more about tea is to enjoy it while talking about it.”

When she is not enjoying a cuppa at home or at Gifted, you can find her hard at work with her awesome seventh graders at Shenango Area School District.

More classes coming soon!
